Must WATCH video: Brexiteer Steve Baker exposes Remainers' Brexit broken promises


The video compilation shows Remainer MPs and party leaders such as former Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn promising on several occasions the UK would leave the EU, the Brexit referendum results would be respected and there would not be a second vote on the issue. MPs like Keir Starmer or former Tory now Lib Dem Sam Gyimah now strongly campaigning for a People’s Vote can be seen adamantly ruling out another referendum. 

Even Sir Oliver Letwin, exiled former Tory MP who forced the Prime Minister to ask for a Brexit extension on Saturday with an amendment to Boris Johnson’s deal, can be seen listing the UK’s red lines in the Brexit negotiations.

Namely: “We are leaving the single market and we are leaving the customs union.” 

Arch-Remainer Philip Hammond also made and broke the exact same promise during various interviews – as the video reveals. 

But perhaps the most striking ones were former Labour MP Chuka Umunna, now with the Liberal Democrats, and Change UK the Independent Group leader Anna Soubry claiming there should not be a second vote.

Or Labour MP Hilary Benn who can be seen, prior to the referendum results, saying “you vote to leave, we’re out. That’s it, we’re going” – despite drafting the Benn Act which ensured Boris Johnson could not take the UK out of the bloc without an agreement.

The leader of the European Research Group (ERG) of eurosceptic Tory backbenchers posted the video on social media a day after MPs voted in favour of Sir Oliver Letwin’s amendment forcing the Prime Minister to ask the EU for an extension. 

Mr Baker tweeted: “It would be hilarious if it were not so serious. Essential viewing. Please share. #GetBrexitDone

It comes as Boris Johnson will attempt to introduce the withdrawal bill in the Commons today in a bid to secure a majority for an October 31 exit. 

The Labour Party also vowed to put forward an amendment to the Prime Minister’s deal to force the attachment of a confirmatory referendum to the proposal before MPs vote on it.

But Downing Street said it would pull Monday’s vote if any amendments are selected which would “render the vote pointless”.

“There is no point having a meaningless vote – the Government would pull the motion. We will go ahead with the introduction of the WAB with second reading tomorrow,” the PM’s official spokesman said.

“The public want Brexit done – the Government is determined to pass the PM’s great new deal and get us out of the EU on October 31.”
